Thanks aandi.

I've now managed to successfully register for AVPageView keydown events and intercept enough keystrokes to achieve single keystroke shortcuts, although a more robust solution would still be good (e.g. won't work in the bookmarks pane).

I certainly agree with not messing with individual toolbars! The preference for this particular application is to use as much screen space ('real-estate') as possible so I was hoping for a 1-line code solution for hiding the lot. Disappointingly convoluted, but I have finally managed to hide the toolbar by invoking the hide all toolbars via an AVDocopen callback. By itself the toolbars remained visible if no document was open - not such a bad thing, but not my decision!

Thanks for the advice.

In C

"X" is a string - of type char*
'X' is a single character

You cannot use these interchangeably, so if a method needs a char, you must use single quotes.

Individual toolbars are under the user's control. You should certainly not be messing with whether individual toolbars are shown or hidden, they could have spent ages getting the combination and layout right.

You should probably be setting this option when you open the document. This is not obvious, but see AVDocOpenFrom....WithParamString, and see "PDF Open Parameters" on

Or, you could execute the "Hide (all) toolbars" menu item.

Bear in mind that the user can use F8 to put them all back.
